Courtney Barnett has released her first work for 2017, a single titled How To Boil an Egg, a reworking of one of the first songs she ever wrote.
She used to perform the song at open mic nights when she first started out but never recorded it. Barnett plays every instrument on the recording.
The track was recorded for Split Single Club’s vinyl series. Split Singles Club is a collaboration of Barnett’s label Milk! Records and Bedroom Suck. The single is available digitally by subscribing to Split Singles Club.
Discussing the release Barnett said “In tradition of the Milk! Records compilation releases, like Pickles From The Jar or Three Packs A Day, I wanted to include a song of mine for Split Singles Club that was a tad left of album-centre. It’s a songwriting experiment that doesn’t really belong anywhere else.”
Barnett is currently in the process of working on her new album. She is also in the process of collaborating with Kurt Vile.
How To Boil an Egg is out now.
